John Dillinger was killed near the Biograph Theater on the 22nd of July, 1934 - shortly before 11 p.m.  Despite the late hour, it took little time for people in Chicago to learn that Dillinger had been gunned down - and they began to gather at the site. 

It was reported that both men and women used articles of their own clothing to soak-up some of Dillinger's blood.
